1/48 PZL 24 E Mirage Hobby + Resin Upgrade build progress
Posted by setal on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 4:13 AM

Hello there this is my first post on this forum.

I will start with a build progress of this kit witch I have improved with a new released resin conversion and decals for the 1/48 Romanian PZL 24 E

So I have started with aircraft interior whitch is pretty simple but I have added some improvements like Yahu Models instrument pannel and some borowed pilot seat, control stick and rudder peddals from a IAR 80 1/48 resin kit (since both aircrafts share the same fuselage)

Mirage said, a long time ago, that they intended to release an 'E' version but they never did. Hopefully the exhausts with the conversion will fit, unlike the resin ones in the Mirage kits. Part have a PE set for the kit with interior and exterior details.

I think there is a big difference between the resin conversion and the resin included in the kit

And the fuselage ansambled. As you can see, there is a need to apply some filler where the parts are joining together.

Then the wing and horizontal stabilizer. Here I have added some stiren to fill the gap where the stabilizer is joining with fuselage
